aaaahhhh...Japan...the first place I've ever stepped on a snowboard!...Was stationed at Iwakuni (on mainland JP) for a year...not idea what resort I was at but it was 30 min from Iwakuni....I never had an issue w/ talking to ppl there...JP requires at least 1 yr English to be tought in school so alot of ppl there can speak some English....Japanese people have a very quiet culture so most try to avoid anyone non Japanese anyways....

I need to take a trip back there....loved it!

P.S. Wouldn't suggest eating anything at any of the resorts out there....3 of us came down w/ food poisioning after eating the ckn at the cafeteria there....
